Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.
You who choose to lead must follow,
But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.
Torah is like the ripple. It emerges to teach without being pushed. But it takes a willful act of stopping in order that we notice.
Moses led, but in the end he had to be a follower. Ultimately we have to find the way for ourselves.
